Out with the old, in with the new

Happy New year to you!  So here we are on the very first day of 2009 with lots of people probably nursing hangovers, others laden with new year resolutions and some like me just looking forward to what should hopefully be a healthy and happy year ahead.

The Mrs and I welcomed in the new year browsing and shopping online (sad but true!) in-between watching the BBC’s iPlayer coverage of the new year being welcomed in by fireworks around the London Eye.

In keeping with the theme of the day I decided to invest some time rummaging through my wardrobes in an attempt to sort out what now fits me and what doesn’t – not to mention what can be considered fashionable or not as the case may be!  I’m an official hoarder you see 🙂

Now don’t get me wrong the fact that I’m now hovering just below the 16 stone mark is very pleasing, but the sheer number of clothes I’m having to get rid of is scary!  Take my work trousers for example, I’m passing 13 of them onto charity, leaving me with only 4 left.  Now that tells me a lot….I’ve got too many work trousers and God only knows how many other clothes will be finding themselves a new home.

Oh well my loss is someone elses gain and for me that’s a positive start to the new year.
